1,700 new outline words today, very detailed stuff down in the scene level. Unusual for me. My last note of the day: "Does this book have an ending?" I swear, I am not outlining a trilogy here, but Green herself doesn't seem to agree.

More to come.

Maybe because you have been writing in triligoys your brain naturally just flows this way now in your writing process....hope I can get a signed ARC at least someday but will miss you at Norwescon...sigh

Green wants a trilogy. Just sayin'. Hope she doesn't eat your brain.

I'm curious -- you say the detailed stuff down to the scene level is unusual for your outlines... How do you do your outlining (normally)? Basic notes, synopsis of each chapter, theme-based outline, or what?
